Give Peace A Chance

1. maj 2008

Beat-musikken er efterhÃ¥nden sÃ¥ gammel, at den kommer pÃ¥ museer og auktioner. I Billboard kan man læse, at John Lennons hÃ¥ndskrevne udkast til sangen Give Peace A Chance kommer under hammeren hos Christie’s i London og forventes at indbringe omkring $ 400.000. Og selv om dollaren ikke er, hvad den har været, sÃ¥ er det dog en sjat penge. Det fortælles ogsÃ¥, at John Lennon gav sit udkast til en teenager-pige og bad hende om at gemme det, for det ville blive meget værd med tiden. Jo, Lennon kendte godt sit eget værd.
